What is

Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow

Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow treatment

Frozen Shoulder treatment provided by our physiotherapist in Ballito. We have  extensive experience in treating Frozen Shoulder treatment

Tennis and Golfer’s Elbow

If you stand with your arms by your side with your palms facing forwards then tennis elbow is when the pain is on the side of your elbow that is furthest away from your body and golfer’s elbow is on the side closest to your body.

Both are conditions of the tendons that move your wrist up and down and definitely are not limited to those who play tennis or golf.

As a Physiotherapist I have seen, over the years, many patients with tennis elbow who are office workers, new padel players and even new mothers and grandparents, just to name a few.

Usually it is from a sudden increase in a new activity or the amount of hours spent in that activity.

Physiotherapy services that will help are education on activity modification to take the load off of the tendons, soft tissue mobilisation, dry needling as well as pain management and strengthening exercises to help with the healing of the tendon and to strengthen the muscles of the wrist.

Conditions We Treat:

Trochanteric and Subacromial Bursitis

Bursae are small sacs of fluid that occur normally in various places in the body including on the side of your hip or upper thigh (trochanteric) and under the bone at the very top of your shoulder (subacromial).

Muscle strains and tendon sprains

For the first 12 days after a muscle (strain) or ligament (sprain) tear the body sends inflammation to the area which contains the ingredients necessary for healing but this inflammation also contains chemicals that irritate the nerve endings which is what causes pain. It is important to leave

Arthritis

What is very important to remember with arthritis is that it does not develop overnight and could have been there for years before the pain started. Also that arthritis is a normal aging process that will be

Frozen Shoulder

Often when a shoulder injury is left untreated for a prolonged period it can lead to a frozen shoulder which is when the capsule around the shoulder joint becomes extremely stiff and results in very limited shoulder movement for up to 2 years! This is what we always try to avoid

Shoulder pain, rotator cuff tendinopathy and strains

The shoulder is held in place by a set of five very important muscles that attach to the shoulder blade called the infamous rotator cuff! The mistake so many patients make is to think of rotator cuff injuries as one size fits all when there is actually a long spectrum ranging from just overuse

Neck pain and headaches

Neck pain often comes from cervical postural syndrome which is caused by long periods spent driving or sitting at a computer for example in the incorrect position or posture which leads to certain muscles of the neck being placed under a lot of unnecessary load which leads to dysfunction in these muscles and trigger points being activated which can even cause referrals into the head and face.

Lower Back Pain and Sciatic Nerve Referral

Low back pain can come from the various components that make up this commonly affected area namely the lumbar spine made up of joints, discs and ligaments, muscles that protect and move the low back and the spinal cord and nerves.
